We had such a great lunch on Saturday--which turned into drinks, oysters, and many laughs over the afternoon! Our server, Diandra, was awesome--great service and so nice. We've been there several times over the years and always enjoy the food, beach view, and fun atmosphere.

Excellent location and we love being able to look right at the dunes and the beach from the outdoor tables. Really good service and fresh and labor full food. Excellent lobster rolls and fish-and-chips. Good beer. Friendly, fun place, very beachy.

Only wanted to stop for a quick beer and snack before dinner much later. The beer was good and so was the caesar salad with salmon. The margarita was the best. The buck a shuck was a deal that you can't pass up. Fresh and...More
